Time to register for the Ladysmith Days Parade

The Ladysmith Kinsmen Club is encouraging people to submit their registrations for the Aug. 2 parade.

Have a great idea and a group of fun people you want to spend a morning marching or driving down First Avenue with? That’s all you need to participate in the annual Ladysmith Days Parade.

This year, the Ladysmith Days Parade will be held Saturday, Aug. 2 at 10:15 a.m., and the Ladysmith Kinsmen Club is now accepting registrations.

The theme for this year’s parade and Ladysmith Days weekend is “Ladysmith Has Summer Fun,” although parade participants do not need to follow the theme.

“The Kinsmen’s goal for the parade is that we want the participants to have as much fun as the spectators, so whatever participants want to do is fine with us,” said Kinsmen Club member Duck Paterson.

After the parade, volunteers from Ladysmith Family and Friends (LaFF) will provide refreshments and snacks for participants at Aggie Hall.

Entry forms can be picked up at the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce office and at Ladysmith City Hall. Forms are also available from any member of the Kinsmen Club, and they can be downloaded from the Kinsmen Club website. There is no entry fee.
